SOB stands for ‘Sound Of A Bitch’and is a new extension of The Lofiles org platform. We have decided, after 4 years of fruitful blogging, to expose the artists we believe in to a wider crowd, and to try to run this web station in a unlimited fashion as possible. We are really open to suggestions, recommendations, if there is an interesting artist you might think of that fits the Lofiles bill, Lofi, Experimental, Musical, Minimalistic, Uncompromising, etc, let us know. In the meantime, visit us HERE

I have just heard a Django Reinhardt track, and remembered having heard those 2 local artists playing at a radio station in Tel Aviv, one band is Swing De Gitanes, and they are on a Django Reinhardt successors mission, 2 classical guitars and upright bass, and the other one is violinist Mirel Reznik, a Klezmer Gipsy master, playing a violin guitar swinging piece. This is the actual broadcast session.
Watch this awesome hardcore gypsy punk madness – Gogol Bordello live at the Barbie club Tel Aviv – this is part 2 of 7 by Lolive.
Gogol Bordello tore the place down, brought the roof down, with a nasty hardcore punk gypsy klezmer folk metal, no bullshit set, the whole house was shaking. This was one of the best sets I have seen in Barbie, Tel Aviv. Boom Pam were opening and I thought they kicked a… till these guys hit the stage. These are some images from this magical night, and later on video clips, hopefully we have succeeded to capture part of last night`s mayhem for you.
This collaboration of Guignol & Mischief Brew is being released these days on Fistolo records. This is a beautiful mish mash of folk, punk, rock, klezmer, gypsy music and jazz.
“Flight dirty” contains seven Mischief Brew songs with Guignol as backing band, six Guignol songs with Erik on guitar, a Django Reinhardt cover, and an Iron Maiden cover.
Guignol is led by Franz Nicolay ( The hold steady), Peter Hess (Balkan beat box), George Rush (Hem), John Bollinger (Antony and the Johnsons).
MISCHIEF BREW`s music falls somewhere between the categories of pirate punk, Celtic folk, gypsy swing, devilish jazz, American olde-tyme and country.
Recorded at Vibromonk Studios with Danny Shatzky (Firewater, Balkan Beat Box, Gogol Bordello), GUIGNOL & MISCHIEF BREW’S Fight Dirty collaboration is a fascinating record, so versatile, and whether you are a jazz, pop, folk, gypsy music fan, you should own this one.
The Tel Aviv based band Boom Pam was formed in 2003 and play a mixture of Mediterranean, rock and surf music with 2 electric guitars, a tuba and drums. I call it wedding surf turbo. This band is smoking and u could see them tonight at This great funky place Abraxas playing as part of Kol Hakampus Festivities. In case you dont know, Abraxas is this great bar mostly thanx to the owner, Eddie, who is a music freak, and DJing there on a regular basis, usually on Sunday nights when they got gigs as well. You got to understand the place is so small but packed, and the sound is great. And again, in case you didn’t know, Kol Hakampus is the beat local station ( and a non profit org ) for indie music. Hopefully I`ll have some video action for you after tonight`s show
